If you’re from around here, I don’t need to tell you what an amazing summer (by Irish standards) we’ve been having in Galway! It’s amazing! Sunny days, warm water, cool breeze… I was so happy to avail of this situation with one of my couples and take them to one of my favourite spots – Silverstrand! We got in just before the tide (and all the traffic!) rolled in. It was absolutely blissful. I love doing engagement shoots on locations that are a little different from what the couple’s wedding day is going to be. We can always trek that bit further without the wedding dress too!
It’s a bit mad for a photographer to shoot in the mid day sun but I think we pulled it off! I like the idea of engagement shoots not being just about the technical side but also a nice day-trip, a memory to cherish. I think we accomplished that with Christina & Joe!
The blue tones that the guys chose to wear perfectly matched the colour of the ocean that day. We had fun splashing in the water and we didn’t really want to leave!
I never came to the beach or stood by the ocean
I never sat by the shore under the sun with my feet in the sand
But you brought me here and I’m happy that you did
‘Cause now I’m as free as birds catching the wind
